Several people have pointed out that I forgot to mention the archive
site for Grammar and Trees, the parser and tree-drawing HyperCard stack.
Sorry about that! It is at archive.umich.edu in
 /linguistics/software/mac/Grammar-and-Trees-10.hqx

We regret any inconvenience caused

Message 4: Placing a paper on the IPPE

Subject: Placing a paper on the IPPE

=================================
Time to place a paper on the IPPE
================================= With the beginning of the new year
and the new semester, the rate of submissions to the International
Philosophical Preprint Exchange has climbed dramatically, suggesting
that over the last few months many people have postponed submitting a
paper until quieter times.

This note, then, is a reminder to all these (conjectural) postponers.
If you have a paper you'd like to place on the IPPE, please contact
Carolyn Burke, cburkenexus.yorku.ca, who will be pleased to assist you.

For the impatient, I attach some notes on how to submit a paper without
assistance.

Richard Reiner, Coordinator
International Philosophical Preprint Exchange

=================
Call for Comments
================= The purpose of a preprint exchange is to provide
the authors of working papers with access to a large number of their
peers world-wide so that their pre-published work can nonetheless
receive the benefits of criticism and commentary. Many of our
submitters have indeed received interesting and useful comments,
although so far these have all been addressed through private email.

At this time, I would like to encourage you to get involved, either by
sending a private comment on some a paper to its author(s) (their email
addresses may be found in the first line of each abstract), or by
submitting a comment or discussion of publishable quality for inclusion
within the IPPE paper directory beside the corresponding preprint. If
you would like to submit a comment, see the attached notes on how to
submit a comment below.

Please note that it is in order to receive feedback on their work that
many of our submitters have placed preprints with the IPPE.

Carolyn L Burke,
International Philosophical Preprint Exchange

===============================

 your paper there (full instructions on how to use ftp are available
 on the system in the file pub/info/preprints-manual).

 2. by email:

 You may upload these files separately, or all together in a zip, zoo,
